Mariah Carey Fans Club Comes from Atlanta

I have been e-mailing a new friend in Atlanta ever since MaKayla was diagnosed with her brain tumor and cancer..she is part of the Mariah Carey fan club down there..well Maggie & Kim came from Atlanta on Saturday to bring wonderful gifts for MaKayla & Mariah..they brought Mariah Carey Cd's & jewelry! They also brought them 2 5th row concert tickets and hotel acommodations for the night of the concert..which is Aug 9th there in Atlanta..We have all been so excited to meet with the girls and we had a fun time with them.. they played TWISTER with the girls and were having a great time when I left..the fan club is having club T-shirts for them to wear at the concert and will be all together for the big event! We are very excited about them going to the show..we are now trying to get 2 more tickets so the whole family can enjoy a good time for a change..its been so crazy with MaKayla's treatments twice a week and then usually once a month hospital stay for the major chemo..Maggie and her fan club are working with Miss Carey's managers to possibly get the kids back stage to meet the great Mariah Carey..hopefully this can happen and make my grandaughters dream come true..all this came from an e-mail I sent to Maggie and she and her friends have really stepped it up and made alot of things happen..I will always be indebted to them..them are doing great things with their young lives and we shall never forget them! Thanks Maggie & Kim & everyone that has helped make a little girls dream come true! Your the best! (sorry my pics aren't as clear as I'd like them to be..)

How about that, Pretty Little Girl Shorts!

Well I couldn't find a pattern for shorts so I just did one myself..not too bad.. I don't have my models here so I can't tell you how they fit until the weekend when I will be going to GA to visit the kids..but I thought they were cute..easy & quick to make too..take a looksy!

Ok, well here is the pattern.. its not perfected as I just wrote as I was going..Here we go..I also crochet loosely so you may want to adjust the pattern accordingly..if you want bigger shorts bigger hook..

Size H

Red Heart Soft Baby Yarn-I don't know how much just a small amount..

Ch 80,sl st in the first ch of beg be sure not to twist your work ( you'll be working in rounds never turning)

ROW 1: ch 2, ( working thru back loops) HDC around, join at top of ch2. (80 hdcs), ch2

ROW 2: working in rounds hdc around each st. join in top of ch2,(80 hdc) (work thru back loops)

ROW 3: (work thru both loops throughout rest of pattern) Ch 3, DC in each st around, join top of beg ch.

ROWS 4-14: Repeat ROW 3:(this is the body of the shorts so you can make them longer or shorter depending on your child's size)

ROW 15: Ch 3, DC in the next 40 sts. sl st in top of beg ch 3. this makes the leg hole..

ROW 16: Ch 3, Dc around joining in top of ch 3.

ROW 17-18: Repeat Row 16( if you would like your shorts a little longer this is where you just add a couple more rows)

LEG EDGING: Ch1,sc in first st, sk next st, 5 dc in next st, sk next st, sc in next st, sk, next st, 5 dc in next st continue around and sl st in first sc to join. (10 shells ) fasten off and weave ends in..

SECOND LEG: Join yarn with sl st in the crotch area. Ch 3 and dc around each st. (40 dc)join in top of beg ch 3.

REPEAT ROWS 16-18 of the other leg and do edging..

Crotch area: I just sewed a few sts there to pull it tighter so there wasn't a little whole there..(I'll work on that)

OK now I just ch 125(or however long you want your ties) sl st back thru and wove the tie in every 2 stitches..

I think that's it! Well I have not tested this pattern I just wrote as I went.. so if ya'll find a problem or get confused let me know please I can help you out or change the pattern accordingly! Happy Crocheting! I will have pics this weekend of all the items I have made for my grandaughters as I am going to visit them in GA this weekend!! I can't wait to see eveyrthing on them..SSOOOO EXCITED!!

I am now making a top to go with the shorts and will post it today when I finish! Then its on to CAPRIS pants!!! I'm so inspired lately! LOL Wish me luck!

Here's the same only in PINK!

Here is the twin outfit to the Granny Square Halter & Skirt from Christina's pattern..I thought it was cute in pink too! Everything I make as you can tell is usually pink & purple which is my grandaughters favorite colors! Enjoy!

Here's another outfit w/doo-rag too!

I've had a busy weekend! Working on cars and getting ready for another trip to GA to see the kids and visit the baby in the hospital.
Well I of course found time to whip out another outfit for the twins..It's the Little Girls Granny Halter & the Sweet Little Skirt from the great designer Christina Budd at its on the front page of her blog. Her designs are Cute, quick & easy to turn out! I did not use the elastic around the waist of the skirt ( I don't do well with that stuff LOL) I just did a chain & sl st back thru and wove it thru the top of the skirt..worked pretty good too!!

Hope you all like it!
Thanks Christina for your awesome designs!

Oh yeah I forgot to add these I made these some time ago for the babes! I think I used this pattern for them.. Its the Child's Skirt & Halter pattern..Thanks Margret! Great pattern!
